Good morning everyone!
So today when I started my pc I went to get some water and when I came back there was this weird black screen loading up files, I couldn't see clearly what it was because I just woke up.

It was something like:
'' 39% bla bla bla bla''
''40% bla bla bla bla''

''41% bla bla bla'' 
and so on until 100%, so I thought it was a automatic startup repair but I didn't even get that option.

 

I have never seen this before, can someone tell me if it's a virus or something?
 

Have a nice day!

Unfortunately, "bla bla" isn't helpful to us for diagnostic purposes. I'm guessing it was just a Windows Cumulative Update that was installing - or perhaps even autocheck running on your hd if it was a black screen -- but without knowing exactly what the screen said it's hard to be certain. Regardless, I sincerely doubt it's a "virus or something".

Second Allan's observation.

 

If you're worried about an infection do a manual scan with your antivirus and/or antimalware scanners.  If they come back clean then I certainly wouldn't worry and if they don't, but whatever it is gets quarantined/removed, I still wouldn't worry.

If one is to believe the OP, and his subject, it's Windows 7.
